. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Skip Lockwood and Ken Sanders, both former Oakland property, combined to pitch the Brewers to a 4-1 victory over the Athletics. Five double plays, setting a Milwaukee club record, helped stop the A's, who collected 11 hits. Their only run scored on singles by Sal Bando, Gene Tenace and Bobby Brooks in the seventh when Lockwood needed help from Sanders. [The Sporting News]
